Roger Lycette, a master gardener, will be speaking about the challenges and rewards of growing peonies in our Maine climate. An inveterate gardener, he enjoys sharing the beauty of growing his beloved flower and seeing the undeniable awe and pleasure every visitor experiences when they see the blooms up close. It can be argued that growing peonies are less advantageous because of their short growing season, but peonies are unrivaled when they are in flower.
Join us for Roger Lycette’s presentation, May 4th, at 1PM. Rockport Garden Club meets at The West Rockport Baptist Church, 545 Park Street.
All are welcome to our events and presentations. Founded in 1934, the Rockport Garden Club, is committed to Town Beautification and supporting a scholarship program. For more information about the Rockport Garden Club and its many civic and social activities, please contact email@example.com
Roger’s active part in The Peony Society of Maine combined with creating his own beautiful garden are an inspiration. For over a decade, Roger and his wife, Sally, also a master gardener, have been inviting the public to their home in Bangor to see the 250 peonies on their property.
The Peony Society of Maine seeks to serve amateur gardeners who would like to expand their awareness of the wide variety of peonies available to them, both modern and antique and promote the cultivation of peonies to ensure their longevity for many decades to come.
